Imagine that a line on a Cartesian graph is approximately the distance y in feet a person walks in x hours. What does the slope of this line represent? How is this graph useful? Provide another

example for your colleagues to explain.

The slope of the line represents the speed of the person in feet per hour. [ This graph is useful because it provides a visual representation of the continuous motion of the person walking, something that could not provided by something like a bar graph. In a bar graph, the sheer number of columns and their shape makes representation of a temporal action cumbersome, whereas in a line graph, the

information is represented fluidly, as it is reality.

Provide another example for your colleagues to explain. **Weegy:** The graph slope will represent the speed of the person. The graph will tell about how the speed varies with time and slope. forexample if a person is walking on a slope of 50 degree should be slower then a person walking in a slope of 20 degree. [ Thanks :)

Provide another example for your colleagues to explain. **Weegy:** slope is the speed in feet per hour the graph is a way to represent diffeent pairs of distances and times the differnt people walking at different speed have different slopes a Flat line all the same distance all the time means standing still, [ [ zero speed you cannot have a vertical line that would mean being in many places at the same time ]

what is the relationship between rise and run? **Weegy:** Mathematicians describe slope as "rise over run," meaning how much a line ascends, or rises, as it "runs" toward its end point. Determining the slope of a ramp yields a number of applications in engineering and construction. [ If the the rise and the run of the ramp has a slope of 1, then the relationship between it would be: slope = rise/run so rise=run. ChaCha! ] (More)

Find the slope-intercept form satisfying the following conditions, x-intercept,2 and y-intercept,2/3 **Weegy:** The slope intercept form is: y – y1 = m(x – x1)
You are already given the x & y values that you can use to find your m value, or slope of the line.
Since the x-intercept is the x value you get when y =0. [ & since we are told that the x intercept is =2, then we know that the coordinates of one of our points is: x = 2 & y = 0
Also, the y intercept is the value you get when x = 0. Therefore, since we know that the second point has a y intercept of 2/3, we know the coordinates of our second point are: x=0 & y = 2/3
Now just plug in these values into the equation:
y – y1 = m(x – x1)
(0 -2/3)=m(2-0)
-2/3 =2m
(-2/3)/2=m
-2/6=m
-1/3=m
y = mx + b
y = -1/3x + b
Now we need to find b & to do that,
we just plug in one of our points into the slope equation.
I'll use the point (0, 2/3)
2/3= -1/3(0) + b
2/3= b
y = -1/3x + 2/3 <======this is your equation ] (More)

How much protein do you need accourding to age and gender? **Weegy:** The answer to this question depends on a variety of variables. [ Are you a man or a woman? Are you an adult, a teenager, or a child? Each gender and age group require different levels of protein in order to be healthy.
Use a Fitness Report Card and monitor your fitness levels as you get fit!
In addition, if you are someone who is very active, then you might need more protein than someone you isn’t active. If you are a very large man, then you will need more protein than a very small man. The question of how much protein you need is very subjective!
You can find an easy step by step method for determining your recommended daily allowance of protein in this article at Livestrong.com. ] (More)
